they willing to talk to pat roberts and me and dianne feinstein, but not anybody else. until we literally bludgeoned them into agreeing to include everybody. karl levin is not trustworthy. it's amazing. i pursued dianne feinstein's point about staff. when you go and you have under the there was administration a briefing with the president or the vice president under the head of the cia and others, you are not allowed to -- i can remember driving with pat robert when is he was chair uh and i was vice chairman, we were not allowed to talk to each other driving up or back. we were not allowed to. the staff was a part of nothing. you have to understand that you are surrounded by people who work with you and fill you in. people were experts. we are too. they have to be part of this. they have to be part of when the olc is coming to them also. i strongly support the chair woman's view on this. in the enhanced intergirogation techniques matter, a handful of officials who were invested and are personally invested in defending the cia's interrogation program, largely because their reputations depe
of wayne lapierre and the national rifle association that makes gun advocates like diane feinstein, to say it will be an uphill battle. >> they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> reporter: but he is on a mission to convince his colleagues. >> we need to wake members up to the fact if they want to do the right thing and join us on gun reform, there is not a political referendum like maybe a decade or two ago. >> reporter: during the 2010 campaign, the nra flooded the area with ads regarding guns, and sherrod brown, and figures for the nonresponsive politics shows that the nra spent over $4 million on the senate campaigns, losing seven out of eight races where they spent over $100,000. money is not the only way to measure influence. >> i think that the nra as a single issue group, is extremely potent as a political force out there. and even though their success rate was less than 50% with their outside spending in the last election, they have these members, millions of members they can mobilize who are strongly motivated on this issue. >> reporter: man
and how did they obtain the guns. if there is a proposition on the table, whether by obama, feinstein or you, that would actually work. i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works, or what sounds kb. when the emotions are this raw for all of us, all want to quote, do something. but we have to do something that works. in the three massacres we are talking about, aurora, tucson and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. the tuesd the tucson shooter passed a back ground check. the guy in aurora would have had the other two weapons to commit his crimes. >> kelleyann. you skillfully avoided my question. >> no, i'm not. >> do you agree with the premise with the sand oo hook child's father, that his son's right to live super seeds the right to own an assault rifle. >> well, i'm also pro life, if you want to have a show about that. but i believe that his son's life is a precious right. we also have the second amendment. if politicians don't like it, they need to amend it. we have 3 million guns in this country -- >> let me b
's by president obama or senator feinstein or you, that would actually work, i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works or what sounds good because when the emotions are this raw for all of us, we all want to, quote, do something, but we have to do something that works. the fact is in the three massacres we're talking about, aurora, tucson, and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. i mean, i hate saying their names so i say the tucson shooter, he passed an instant background check, and the assault weapons ban had failed in his case, the guy in aurora still would have had the other two weapons he used to commit his crimes. >> kellyanne. you skillfully avoided my question, which is do you agree with the sandy hook father's premise that the right of his child's life supersedes the right to own a high-powered weapon or high capacity magazine. >> we have something called the second amendment. if politicians out there don't like it, they're going to have to amend the constitution. you're not going to get very far because as you s
. >> you would support dianne feinstein's assault ban? >> absolutely. i think she's doing a terrific job. >> one of the things you talk about in the book, but, of course, we all have been witnessing the extreme weather phenomenon. >> yeah. >> you know, i was just wondering, since you've brought this issue up, we haven't really been able to do much in the united states, the european union has done something in terms of the kind of things you want to see, cap and trade or perhaps a carbon tax or things like that. china and india continue to add a power plant, essentially, every week. so, do you look at that and say climate change is going to happen, no matter what at this point? >> well, some climate change is already happening and will continue to happen. the physics of the problem are quite challenging. we put, well, 85% of the internal used by earth inc., it comes from fossil fuels. and the combustion of those fuels results in us putting 90 million tons of heat-trapping pollution into the atmosphere every day, as if it's an open sewer. it does obey the laws of physics. it traps enough e
and take all the guns out, that senator feinstein wants to take out -- wait a minute. you're still left with 2,200 guns you can legally buy. >> the problem is you're obsessing over one gun that a bad human being has used a couple of times. >> no, no, wait. >> no, no, let me finish. hold on a second. >> the past five mass shootings in america. >> guess what, the last shooting that i could have been a victim of, it wasn't an ar-15. you're obsessed over the ar-15. have you ever had a gun to your head? >> no. >> have you ever had a man look you in the eyes and say i'm going to your head off? >> no. >> with expletives while grinning? i had a gun to defend myself. i didn't have an ar-15. he didn't have an ar-15. >> why would you need an ar-15 in that situation? >> you're missing the point. >> i'm not missing the point. >> anything is an assault weapon when it's in the bad hands of the bad person. the gun used that night was not on the special list that the senator wants to have out there, the list of guns. you know what? that gun that night was just as dangerous to my life. >> sure. >> when h
in that senator feinstein wants in, there would still be 2,200 guns legally obtained. that is enough. thank you both very much. >>> coming up next, l.a. reid talks x factor, whitney houston and tells us his grammy predictions. i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> i was prepared to just rip you to shreds. doing a beatles song is prepresumptuous as if you are teen heartthrobs like the beatles and you actually are teen heartthrobs like the beatles. >> you may recognize them. he is also chairman and ceo of every record and played a key role in recent successes of artists including kanye we have, jennifer lopez and a little phenomenon called justin bieber. this week, the grammy salute. welcome to you. >> thank you. >> how does it feel to be an icon? >> i'm not sure. it come this weekend. a little bit scary. i feel like i haven't arrived at that point in my career yet. i'm a little bit young for it. >> of all
feinstein then let the hearing resume after about a ten-minute break with a lot of empty chairs in there. she is allowed to ask them to leave when there are disruptions that sort of determined at the discretion of the chair, wolf. >> there's been a bunch of questions on what's called enhanced interrogation. some call it torcher on very, very sensitive issues. what did he have to say? >> reporter: the nominee in the past has said that he opposed enhanced interrogation but he was asked about a statement he made in 2007 to cbs news in which he said in part, quote, there has been a lot of information that has come out from these interrogation procedures that the agency, be meaning the cia, has in fact used against the real hardcore terrorists and it has saved lives. well, he was asked to defend that statement. why does he think back in 2007 enhanced interrogation saved lives but now he doesn't. this administration opposes enhanced interrogation, wolf. john brennan said, it was the work of this very committee that he's testifying in front of that issued his mind. they issued a 6,000 page repo
senator feinstein and obama. i say perverse, because he then goes out and commits a set of atrocities with a gun. he sounds completely unhinged, yet the catalyst for all this appeared to be his firing from the lapd. do you have any recollection of what happened with him? do you remember him? >> first off, we don't know hot the catalyst was. the firing was back in 2008, i believe. it's now over five years ago. so what has transpired during those five years, the court several years later upheld the firing. so as to what triggered the actions, the producing of the manifesto, the separate sending of a package to cnn last friday, we don't know. and we won't know until they either apprehend him or other information comes forward. so was it the firing? was it something else that transpired? he appears to have a lot of anger directed to a lot of different people. some who have no relationship at all, as best we can tell, with anything having to do with the discharge. >> the package he sent to anderson cooper, which anderson didn't see until today, wasn't made aware of it, it contained a numbe
in iraq, afghanistan as well. applaud him for his service. you wrote a letter to senator dianne feinstein, who has put up legislation for a so-called assault weapons ban. you said, i'm not your subject. i'm the man who keeps you free. i'm not the servient, i'm the person who you serve. i'm not your peasant, i'm the flesh and flood of america. to someone who says, the counter argument, why do you need an ar-15, why do you need a semiautomatic so-called assault rifle? >> the ar-15, first off, is a very urg naergonomical platform. for people who haven't been in combat, it's something i experienced in my first marine corps. you brain releases chemicals in your body. you lose motor control function, and you shake, and you miss. that happens. now, i helped a 70-year-old man sight his ar-15. i asked him why he had it, it was for self defense. because he's gnaw able to control a 12-gauge shotgun. she would have been better able to engage both of those threats with an ar-15. >> okay, i want to bring in our senior legal analyst, jeffrey toobin. he's on the other side of the aisle. the second amendm
could ban all dianne feinsteins, do whatever she wants to with magazines, it's not going to make any kid safer. >> okay. they're buddies now. >> they're not buddies. joe biden is good at making deals on the hill because these talking to these guys as equals. we know what's what, i'm not going to promise you the moon, this might make a little bit of a different. here's the way policy-making works in general. you have a crisis, you break glass in case of emergency. there's some policy agenda that's been collecting dust on the shelf and you break it out. remember the iraq war, same thing. 9/11 happens, iraqhad nothing to do with 9/11, but a lot of people wanted to invade iraq -- >> there's some people who think you're talking crazy talk there are people who want gun control, there was a political opportunity to push gun control agenda that was round for a long time before this. >> do unthis undercuts joe biden's argument? what he's saying had a lot of truth, yet yet you surround yourself with kids two weeks before to say, we're going to prevent mass shootings with my legislation. >> i do th
of senator feinstein's ban on assault weapons. but of the proposals on the table. whether it's universal background checks or assault weapons ban. is there one you think is most important? i think gun control advocates will say, it's all important. is there one -- if you have to choose one, as it may come down, to it may not be -- is there one that you think would have the biggest impact? >> well, as you have your question proposes, this is not a monolith, each issue is different. assault weapons should be taken off the streets. i've seen them kill babies and police officers, not intended use. the reality is, the background checks, i think, as proved by our program in california, really does give law enforcement a great tool. once someone has been found to be prohibited from owning a gun, we know who has the guns and we can take the guns. and so as a law enforcement tool throughout the country. if we nationalize background checks, made it a requirement in all states, we could do a lot in terms of public safety. the chief of police, for example in los angeles has said to me many times, th
. >> well, if the assault weapons ban came in that senator feinstein wants in, backed by the president, there would still be despite the assault weapons ban she recommends 2,200 guns legally obtainable to american civilians. you know what? that is enough. anyway, mark glaze and lenden eakin, thank you both very much. >>> coming up next, l.a. reid talks x factor, simon cowell, whitney houston, and tells us his grammy predictions. she keeps you guessing. it's part of what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol i
simultaneously rational and lucid and crazy, senator feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the reinstitution of a national awb, of course, an assault weapons ban. he talks about ellen degeneres, and then he talks about governor christie. "what can i say, you're the only person i would like to see in the white house in 2016 other than hillary. do one things for your wife, kids, and supporters, start walking at night and eat a little less. not a lot less, just a little." he's currently in touch with current affairs. about the lbgt community, he says, "don't pick on chick-fil-a, free speech is what makes america great." >> but there's this incredible narcissism, there's this self-obsession, that he is now in a position to talk about politics, to talk about celebrities. that, i mean, is obviously deranged in the context in which we see it. and, you read about it, my reaction was, this is a guy who wants attention on himself. and you have to wonder if by covering him so much, we are almost indulging it. >> well, it's a fair point. >> but how can you not cover a story of this mag
was interrupted several times by protesters. at one point, senator diane feinstein stopped the proceedings and actually had the room cleared. >>> all right. too close for comfort. scientists at nasa say a giant asteroid, about half the size of a football field, is headed our way. they predict it will pass very close to earth on february 15th. no closer than about 17,100 miles. it's one of many large space objects barrelling toward us at the very moment. experts say all of them, inclauinclud including this one, will have very limited, low-impact probability. >> very good. >> fun to watch, probably won't hit. >> i bet a lot of people will weigh in on this next story. should you get paid for all the extra time you spend checking work e-mails when you are outside of work? a chicago police officer has filed a lawsuit against the city asking them to pay up for all the extra hours he says he's frequently required to work when he's off-duty. this is actually happening from home on his department-issued blackberry. that's what he wants to be reimbursed for. here's what the officer's attorney told o
as though the chair wom woman, dianne feinstein, has john brennan's back. she released a statement talking about the fact that she had seen information on -- that proves the legality of this drone use. so that definitely helps brennan big time on the dynamic of his nomination at his confirmation hearing. >> lots of confirmation hearings about to take place and jack lew, too, for treasury. we'll watch this in the coming days. guys, thank you very much. >>> the push for gun control is getting star power in washington today to call for increased gun regulations. cnn's crime and justice correspondence is joe johns. this is all part of a bigger push. >> wolf, we've seen it before, we'll likely see it again. this time it was a whole cast of artists and others performing gun control to try to kweep the pressure on congress. stars speaking out in washington. it's the latest push by gun control groups to lobby the congress. >> doing nothing will fail. doing nothing has failed. >> if we as a people don't act after sandy hook, then we as a people are broken. >> i would like assault weapons eliminated
